Blood Source

Blood Source
Today brought a meeting and presentation at the Blood Source. I have been attending these Review Meetings, nearly quarterly, for 6 years. It has been a gift to spend time with a very dedicated, knowledgable, compassionate Group. The Blood Source has recently changed buildings, and instead of the wonderful Koi Pond, a "check in" desk now greets me, and asks me to sign in (and out) and wear a Visitor Badge...today I was Visitor #16. I have been feeling a bit insignificant lately, and while several years ago I would have explained that with "hormones", I am not sure why it has been that way lately. Today's meeting changed that for me, and if only for a while it is wonderful to feel like what I "do" matters. I am an advocate for Kidney Patients...people like you, and me that without the technology of Dialysis Therapy would not be living to enjoy their day, spend time with their family and breathe the everydayness of air. Sometimes it is just about the small things....
This picture, in the entry of the Blood Source spoke to me, and to all who are committed to research and care for others in some way..."Because of You, Patients are Granted Another Day"...somewhat significant feels really good...

That would be a neat way to do family photos.
